        I. Tombasis, burning a Turkish ship of the line"

      Philhellenic: Munich H. Kohler c1835. Tinted lithograph, as issued, of Iakovos Tombaziz from Peter von Hess's Album of Greek Heroism, or the Deliverance of Greece / Griechenlands Befreiung ... in XXXIX Bildern.[ First edition.] within decorative borders incorporating captions in Greek, German, French & English. The borders are decorated with guns, swords and helmets with the Greek flag to the left; on the right a crucifix and other emblems of the Christian church; at the top Turkish weapons, laid down, with a fez ,and below, sails and naval instruments. Iakovos "Yiakoumakis" Tombazis c. 1782-1829) was a merchant and ship-owner from the Greek island of Hydra who became the first Admiral of the Greek Navy, during the Greek War of Independence. In 1818, he was initiated into the Filiki Eteria, which was preparing the ground for the revolt. When the war broke out, his fellow islanders made Tombazis admiral of the fleet of Hydra. He took part in several clashes against the Sultan's Navy in the eastern Aegean and soon realized that the Greek warships, being mostly converted and armed merchantmen, could not face the Ottoman ships of the line in conventional combat. He therefore proposed the use of fireships instead, and sent Dimitrios Papanikolis to burn the Turkish frigate Moving Mountain anchored at Eresos on Lesbos. Image bright and clean; light spotting to blank borders. Peter( Heinrich Lambert} von Hess 1792-1871, was a German painter, known for historic paintings, especially of the Napoleonic Wars and the Greek War of Independence. In 1833, at Ludwig's request, he accompanied Otto of Greece to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where at Athens he gathered materials for pictures of the war of liberation. He stayed nine months in Greece, interviewing heroes and eyewitnesses of the 1821 revolution. His first- hand knowledge of the heroes gives power to his work. He drew 39 historical persons The sketches which he then made were placed, forty in number, in the Pinakothek, after being copied in wax on a large scale by Nilsen, in the northern arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich, [sadly now destroyed]. It should be noted that Hess was not present during the Revolution; the paintings are representations of reported events. many are of Greek victories, or of heroic deaths of the Greek leaders. Not in Blackmer ,Droulia or Contominas. Philhellenic Iakovos "Yiakoumakis" Tombazis

      Four parts bound in two volumes. [4], 199; [4], 188; [4] 175; [4], 208 pages. Re-backed sometimes over earlier boards; red and black labels. Bindings : 14 x 9.2 cm. Piece cut from the front endpaper and the half title of Part one, also the half-title of part three, presumably to remove an ownership name; inner joints repaired when re-backed; both volumes lack one of two rear endpapers; some very occasional minor spotting; else a very good set. Anthony Blunt's copy with his characteristic pencilled name, 'A.F. Blunt' on the front endpaper of the first volume. This would appear to be the third edition of this famous epistolatory novel, first published in 1782. The majority of Anthony Blunt's library, some 700 antiquarian titles, was acquired by the Courtauld Institute. Many of the copies in the collection bear the same pencilled ownership name. Blunt, born in 1907, joined the British Army at the start of the Second World War and in 1940 was recruited by MI5. After the War, King George VI appointed Blunt Surveyor of the King's Art. He also became director of the Courtauld Institute of Art. His elevated position in society remained throughout the 1950's and into the early 1960's. But this all changed in 1964 when MI5 charged him with being the fourth man in a quartet of Soviet spies known as the 'Cambridge Four.' When assured he would have immunity from prosecution, Blunt confessed. He died in 1963 a recluse.

        Folding & Cutting

      [late 19th/early 20th-century]. Squarish landscape quarto (265 × 262 mm). Brown cloth, title in gilt to the upper board. 32 card leaves, in leporello hinged with linen, with 55 examples mounted. A little rubbed, linen judiciously renewed at the folds and connection to the lower board, leaves slightly browned at the margins. Excellent condition. A nice collection of examples of patterns that can be made by cutting paper, for use at a Froebel kindergarten. With the engraved carte-de-visite of "Miss Caroline G. Tobey - Tuesday Afternoons" mounted on the front pastedown. Friedrich Fröbel (1782–1852) founded his first preschool, for which he coined the term kindergarten, in 1837 in Bad Blankenberg, Germany. Fröebel's educational philosophy held that children should be taught with methods sympathetic to their natural curiosity and individual personalities, and he also developed some of the earliest educational toys, known as Fröebel gifts. His ideas became influential in Europe and the US, and today's kindergartens are direct descendants of Fröebel's. This volume of patterns for creative folding and cutting exercises would have been right at home in a Fröebel kindergarten.

        A Revolutionary War archive concerning a soldier in the First Troop of Col. Sheldon's famous Light Horse Dragoons

      A Revolutionary War archive concerning a soldier in the First Troop of Col. Sheldon's famous Light Horse Dragoons. This archive consists of four documentsóa pay order and three affidavits for Calvin Green, soldier under Col. Sheldon. Calvin Green enlisted in January 1780. He was killed on April 4, 1782. (1) Pay order, dated November 20th 1782, "secure the payment of twenty pounds ten shillings and nine pence... to Calvin Green/deceased." 7" x 6.75" Slight tear at folds with some toning at fold line. Fine condition. (2) Affidavit, dated September 3, 1782, simply states that "Charles Green... hath been duly appointed Administrator on the Estate of Calvin Green... " 7.75" x 8" Some light staining. Fine condition. (3) Affidavit, Sept 4, 1782 states that "Calvin Green a soldier in the Connecticut line in the Continental Service for the years 1780 & 1781 deceased; and hath never received any any [sic] thing from sd town." 8.25" x 4.25" Toning at folds and right edge. Fine condition (4) Affidavit, dated November 15, 1782, states "please to Deliver the Bearer any Security or Money that may be due to Calvin Green a Soldier Serving or who did Serve in the Regiment of light Horse Commanded by Col.óSheldon which Soldier is now dead.". 7.75" x 4" Portion of page is torn, not affecting any writing. Fine condition. In December 1776, Congress responded to a commendation by George Washington, and authorized a regiment of light dragoonsóthe 2d Dragoons, consisting of a Connecticut battalion of light horse already recruited by Washingtonóand commissioned Elisha Sheldon of Connecticut as colonel and commander of the regiment. This was the first cavalry unit in the American army. Dragoons differ from pure cavalry in that the cavalry consists of soldiers who fight on horseback, while dragoons only used horses to move rapidly and then fought dismounted. Dragoons and cavalry were used extensively in southern campaigns during the Revolution; seldom did the terrain allow for cavalry in the north. Banastre Tarleton's Loyalists of the British Legion formed the heart of the British striking force in the south. On July 2, 1779 Sheldon and Tarleton's forces skirmished at Pound Ridge, New York. The battle was inconclusive, with only twelve casualties between the two sides. After 1780, Sheldon's forces were assigned mostly to mobile guard duty in New York along the Hudson River. The documents are in fine condition, with only a slight bit of toning. Two of them have slightly ragged edges, and the Nov 15th affidavit is missing one corner. None of these affect the content in any way; the ink on each is dark and legible. An interesting bit of Revolutionary War history.

        TroisiËme voyage de Cook

      Paris,: Chez Pissot et Laporte,, 1782.. Octavo, with folding engraved frontispiece and folding map; a superb copy, uncut in the original French marbled paper wrappers, contained in a folding cloth box. A superb copy in completely original condition of the scarce French version of Rickman's surreptitious account of Cook's third voyage, published the year after the English original. The frontispiece to the first volume is a re-engraved image of Cook's death, entitled "Mort du capitaine Cook ? Owhy-hÈe, Fevrier 1779", one of the earliest representations of Hawaii.Rickman's account is one of the the most significant of the surreptitious accounts of Cook's voyages - the unauthorised accounts published anonymously to avoid repercussions from the Admiralty, who had embargoed the publication of private narratives before the appearance of the official version. Rickman scooped the official version by a full three years, and even this translation, by J.N. Demounier, reached the public a long time before any version of the official narrative was published.This surreptitious account of the third voyage was published anonymously, but was conclusively shown by Judge Howay (Zimmermann's Captain Cook, Toronto, 1930) to have been the work of John Rickman, a lieutenant on the voyage. His description of the voyage, as well as predating the official account, differs from it in many respects - particularly regarding the death of Cook, for which this is a prime source.Beddie, 1611; Forbes, 'Hawaiian National Bibliography', 45; Kroepelien, 1080; O'Reilly-Reitman, 419.

Nine volumes in thirteen, quarto. Engraved vignettes on title-page. A very good set. Girolamo Tiraboschi (1731-1794) was born in Bergamo and studied at the Jesuit college there. He entered the order and was in 1755 appointed professor of rhetoric and belles-lettres at the Brera in Milan. In 1770 he became librarian to Francis III, duke of Modena, at the Biblioteca Estense. There he collected materials for his monumental Storia della letteratura italiana, the first significant history of Italian literature, which was first published from 1772 to 1782. This was a comprehensive work, extending from Etruscan times down to 1700 and concerns literature in the broadest sense, including history, philosophy, the fine arts, medicine, and jurisprudence. It is heavily documented from sources in the Biblioteca Estense and is noted for its clear and beautiful style. Tiraboschi's other works include Biblioteca modenese (6 volumes, 1781-86), Notizie de' pittori, scultori, incisori, ed architetti modenesi (1786) and Memorie storiche modenesi (1793-94). He edited the Nuovo giornale dei letterati d'Itallia, 1773-1790 and left materials for a scholarly work entitled Dizionario topografico-storico degli stati estensi, which was published in 1824-25.

      London: Printed for the Author, No. 12, Old Broad-Street; and sold by all the Booksellers in Town and Country. 1782 . First Edition 8vo, engr. frontis. printed in bistre, [vi], 435 pp, 10 engraved plates signed "Delegal, London", 19th century half green morocco, marbled bds, marbled edges, title and author tooled direct to spine in gilt, a very little minor foxing on a few pages otherwise a good sound copy. Despite the sub-title, The Whole Art of Hair Dressing, and the British Library's designation of the author as a hairdresser, this work is much more than just a treatise of hairdressing. The frontispiece with its title, "Shakespeare's Seven Ages" gives a better indication of the book's scope, which is then spelled out on the title-page as follows "The plan of this work requiring it, there are also complete rules for the management of children and the education of youth; and excellent rules for the preservation of health and happiness of age; the whole interspersed with moral thoughts, being necessary for all families". His concern for his readers' health prompts a variety of recipes for herbal remedies, and then his discussion of the history of hairstyles leads him into the theatre where he gives a personal assessment of more than sixty actors and actresses of the day. However, it is when he gets down to the techniques of hair dressing that the author speaks with obvious authority. The striking plates by (James?) Delegal show various hairstyles. ESTC T145753
